Re: barn raising a community wireless network in SF
>>A few questions.
>>What are the specs for Clif's boxes?
linux/2 200mw radios.
more data will be forthcoming when he gets back to oregon (he is spending his time on buildings this week).
>>What's the architecture of the network you are building?
simple. level 3 routing, briding dhcp packets to address out of one pool.
>> Routing protocols? Multicast?
>>What are the TOS for use of the IA 'net connection?
Please use it! what we are interested in finding is if we can make this thing useful enough at all.
>>What monitoring will you do and what precautions will you take against abuse?
we have the ability to monitor, but we are just monitoring uptime at the moment. then we would like to see how many associations happen. we will do the normal ISP things to keep out abuse. but first we need users.
>>Encryption? Between backbone elements? Between the end users and the AP?
we dont encrypt at this point.
hope that helps. more as it happens.
